"Emaho!" is the shortest Dzogchen teaching. The word means "wondrous," "amazing," "farout," "fantastic." It expresses the joy and wonder — amazement, really — of discovering within ourselves and our world the radiant splendor of our innate natural state directly perceived by our own eyes — the great completeness, wholeness, and oneness of all that is. As the fourteenth-century Dzogchen master Longchenpa sang, "Since things are perfect and complete just as they are, beyond good and bad, without adopting and rejecting, one just bursts out laughing!" . . . Emaho!
